Communication is mostly about listening.
It's so easy to try to fit people in neat little political boxes. But it really doesn't work this way. I think, ultimately, we all have more similarities than differences. What impresses me most about Jamie is that when you talk to him you feel that he is really listening. It's such a rare quality. It's a precious quality. He didn't come to preach or ask for my vote. He came to listen and ask how he could help.
I think listening is what is most needed from our leadership, local and provincial.
The challenge is not getting the message out. The challenge is getting the message in.
I would love to see more leaders in Nova Scotia take the time to meet with people and businesses and learn not just about the challenges they face, but also about the solutions they have discovered.
Thanks, Jamie, for showing the possibilities of great leadership.
